150Watt heater for TiT/PMP?
    #3361945 - 11/14/04 11:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I stopped by a pet shop today, picked up one of those submersible heaters with an external temperature sensor that you can place right in the tank. This kind: http://www.commodityaxis.com/ProductData.aspx?id=64 My question is this: It is rated at 150watts. I was planning on at different times using it to heat a 10 gallon Tub-in-Tub incubator and a 30-40 gallon PMP, by placing it in the geolite/water level. I'm pretty sure it's fine for the PMP, but is it too powerful for the TiT? A salesman at the store said that 150Watts used to heat a 10gallon aquarium (now mind you, he's talking about one full of water) would be too much and would cause the temperature to jump around quite a bit. Anyone have experience w/ this?
